BOTOX is a drug made from botulinum toxin that is used to cosmetically remove wrinkles - specifically frown lines and crow's feet - and treat some muscle conditions by temporarily paralyzing a person’s facial muscles. While it is mostly known for wrinkle removal, BOTOX is also used to treat blepharospasm, strabismus, severe neck and shoulder muscle spasms, and similar conditions. This prescription medication is injected into the muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows as well as crow’s feet lines in adults. Visible results have been shown to last up to four months. BOTOX blocks the nerve impulses that control facial muscles. This reduces the effects that frowning, squinting, etc., have on the surface of your skin. BOTOX injection sessions normally only take about 10-20 minutes. They take 3-4 days to take effect, and can last 3-4 months. Once it takes effect, wrinkles are softened and, in some cases, eliminated, giving your face a more youthful look. After the injections wear off, you can get another treatment. BOTOX injections are not painful and have no addictive properties.
